Check Engine Code confusion

I have a 1995 E320 that I bought New Years eve. Happy with it but recently had the check engine light come on. This year has the little code box near the battery. LED number 4 comes on and flashes 26 times. I have been able to find the codes for the numbers 4 = air intake inoperative but what do the 26 flashes narrow it down to?

Why is is so hard to find a simple list of the codes?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
